The NHS is a major contributor to the UK’s carbon footprint, creating around 4-5% of the country’s carbon emissions1. Without effective action, climate change will have profound implications for the health and wellbeing of the UK’s population; the smooth delivery of our health and social care services; and the management of critical infrastructure.
The Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service report laid out the NHS’s national decarbonisation strategy. It set a clear goal of becoming the world’s first net zero national health service, by becoming net zero across Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040 and across Scope 3 emissions by 2045.
Now, these national targets need to be translated into action. Some obvious high-level interventions will be needed, such as upgrades to building infrastructure. But this top-down approach means it can be very difficult for an individual trust or hospital to see what decarbonisation means for their specific site. We have a wealth of experience in helping healthcare providers to bridge the gap between national strategies and on-the-ground action.
We know that your net zero ambitions need to be delivered at a time when funding shortfalls and higher input costs have put budgets under immense pressure. Our unique combination of strategic guidance, industry expertise, innovative technology, flexible funding and full lifecycle support means we can help you to deliver an Energy Pathway that’s both environmentally and economically viable.

Ageing and inefficient energy estates cause wastage. Avoidable spend must be eliminated in order to enable more investment in improving patient healthcare. New energy technologies can improve operational efficiency, reduce energy costs and meet regulation requirements.
The resilience of health services is critical to protect patient care and health workers. A robust, resilient and compliant energy strategy will help to manage this risk, by reducing exposure to grid failures whilst ensuring effective management of energy estates.
We can help you to develop low-carbon energy strategies, reduce your carbon emissions, deliver energy conservation initiatives, and make the switch to renewable energy sources, all underpinned by flexible funding models, so you can deliver your net zero goals.
We deliver a full range of technologies and services that help the NHS and other healthcare providers to analyse, finance, install, operate and optimise energy. Combined with our whole building approach that encompasses fabric upgrades such as window replacements and roof and wall insulation, our solutions deliver cost efficiency, resilience and sustainability.
